This year, Sony will be doing something different, due to the huge number of games that are sure to be covered, and a major focus on the NGP, their E3 conference will last a record breaking five hours. Oh, and there'll be a special event afterwards.
WOW are you serious?! How do you know this? Does it say on invitation card? 5 hours?! I still have hard time to believe that it will last THAT long.
My words exactly looks like Sony is gonna make everyone forget about what happen last month. @Dr.stab wounds I think more than the girlfriends i've had:D. @Clizz if Sony would announce a Legend of Dragoon 2 that right there would be enough for me at E3.
5 hours? Sony must have something big planned for it to span that long
More like a lengthy explanation of what went wrong. Hey, they are being asked by federal govt. Why not do it where everybody will listen? edit: don't kid yourselves guys. if given the opportunity to hear the whole story you know you would.
Well they got to cover the NGP and the PS3 and potentially the PS.Play? still, good news none the less ;)
the conference will only be 2 hours but then there will be a 3 hour event where they will show all the games in detail and have hands on time with NGP for the journalists.
pls show Agent
@darthv72 Its not gonna take 5 hours to explain what happened during the breach. That would only take like 15 min. max. They aren't gonna waste time at E3 just to give an in-depth analysis of how the breach happened. And even if they did, it wouldn't take very long.
I heard they will have the marine that shot Osama walk out on stage this year.
I want to hear more about Playstation Suite for Android, PSP ports to PS3 and maybe an anouncement for the Metal Gear Solid Collection or Syphon Filter for PS3 wouldn't hurt either.
5 frekin hours ?? WTF they got to show ?
@Tephees3: Well let's see, they've got... Uncharted 3 Resistance 3 Starhawk Santa Monica Project IP God Of War 4?? Agent Quantic Dream Project?? Sorcery MASSIVE NGP COVERAGE!!11!!!!1!!111!1 NGP GAMES (Uncharted, Killzone etc.) Eight Days!? The Getaway 3!? HD Remakes (GTA CLASSIC TRILOGY PLEASE!!!) PSP HD REMAKES Guerilla Project?? Twisted Metal Third Party Announcements PSN info BIG MEGATON SURPRISE(S) That PS3 RPG (sorry I forget the name) Kevin Butler Sony Liverpool, Cambridge (I think) & Soho project (WipEout!!) and stuff that I couldn't think of..! So yeah, I think they could squeeze that in 5 hours!
Hard not to get your hopes up, but I'm trying not to get overexcited as the hype always gets over-exaggerated. I'd love nothing but a constant onslaught of premiers, trailers, and gameplay, but Of course, it's not going to be just games they will be talking about. Hopefully they dont go on for an hour or two about PSN security and sales, but they likely will dedicate a good amount of time to that too
it usually isnt just games... SONY can easily win e3 every year but they choose to show only a few already seen games.. very few first looks.. and then they start announcing games the months coming after e3... i would say they dont care that much about e3 =S...
New handheld, new security to detail, lots of games to announce.....I'd figure "long".....but wow, 5 hours?
WOAH! FIVE FREAKING HOURS! OMG!!! this just... can't wait!!! Edit: "their E3 event will last a record breaking five hours. First up is the conference, and then there’ll be a special event afterwards" Awesome, hope I can watch the whole thing, including the events...
@ainsz Polyphony Digital will be announcing something too it might be for ngp
Wow. 5 bleeping hours? Holy crap.
I hope is not another one of those 3hr of talk about how the market growth or how the graph changes throughout the years, I heard it enough already lol
5 HOURS!!! Hopefully it's mostly games and not statistics or PS Home/PS2 sales. Makes me wonder if their is going to be announcing the PS4 to compete with Nintendo's Project Cafe and beat Microsoft to the next gen market. 5 hours is just way too long to be just the PS3, NGP and PSN (PSP is almost dead anyway).
It's true. It says it right on the invitation. See: http://media.gamerevolution... There, that's better :)
Edit: Better! Thanks Don't use n4gs image attatchment in future, it's downscale far too much.
Unfortunately image is small, but I believe you. Still it sounds to surreal, maybe it is some misunderstanding. Asking from journalist to sit for 5 hr, how many will accept that?
Those seats better be damned comfortable. An intermission would also be nice, otherwise it's gonna stink in there.... Past that, if they feel they need this much time, they must have a LOT to go over. Will be interesting to see what they bring to the table!
Well, the presser itself is NOT 5 hours. There is the press conference, then an event afterwards.
I bet that conference also has a complimentary dinner.
I think there was a discussion like this last year actually. Turned out the conference was the normal 2 hours. Maybe a little shorter even.
@TOO PAWNED Undoubtedly they would have 1 or two 10-15 min. intermissions during the conference.
Are you SURE that's not some kind of typo? Because 5 hours is unheard of
this is crazy. Possible Sony- GIGATON incoming.
Gigaton. I like it! +Bubbles for a term I think I'm going to use for huge news from now on. :)
good thing I ask for that monday off at work EDIT: it does say on the article that there's the regular keynote and special event afterwards my best guess is that the special event will be for journalists there to have hands on time with the NGP, they will probably make all the announcements on the regular conference EDIT2: mark my words: at the end of the conference Kojima will take the stage for the second time (after the NGP stuff) and show Metal Gear Solid 5
It does seem like it's about time for MGS5 to show up. :)
I really dont believe this. Unless a spokesman from Sony states that the event is actually going to last for 5 hours then i wont believe it. I think there have been rumours previous years that the sony conference was supposed to be superlong but they always turned out having a normal 1.5-2 hour conference. The only way i can see them doing something like this is if they are announcing PS4 at the conference aswell. That would give them so much to talk about that they would need an extra hour or two, but even then id say 5 hours is a stretch. The journalists watching are going to get really exhausted watching a conference that long. I really dont think that would even work.
I have an invite, the entire event IS 5 hours. But it's split between the presser and another event.
well i guess we will know everything we need to know about playstation brand: but sony do have a lot to talk about: ngp ngp pricing launch window launch lineup 3rd party interviews and their support video 10 minutes talk on ps2 ps3's success in 2011 psn issues kevin butler a the lineup for rest of 2011 but their major focus will be 2012-2013 can't wait i usually take the day off on sony's conference so this should be fun i hope they talk about ngp first give it due time to that than move on to ps2 and rest of the time completely on ps3
I'm having a hard time believing this! 5 hours is pretty long! I say Max 2 hours 30 minutes, and possibly close or equal to 3 hours. On one hand, a longer press conference means that Sony is packing in LOTS of stuff to show and talk about. I can hardly wait!
Oh my flipping word... I need to be awake at 2 in the mornign to watch the conference and its in the middle of my exams!!! SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS!!!!
The only way it's going to be 5 hours is if they plan on showing the PS4... Because otherwise there is just no way in hell.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
PS4 announcement ???
Not with the exclusives lined up for this year and next. Also, Sony tend to have 10 year life cycles for consoles.
.... the ps2 is selling alongside the ps3.. and has exceeded 10 years. they didnt wait for the ps2 to reach 10 years before releasing the ps3 nor did they wait for the ps1 to reach 10 years before releasing the ps2. the ps4 IS coming, and soon.
There aren't a lot of things I would watch for five hours. However I will watch all of this. (I'll take potty breaks when they're talking sales figures)
Ugh....it starts at 3.00am for me...
Good news is that you will be wide awake for work...at least for the first half
Reading comprehension please. The press conference AND event totals 5hrs. That means, the usual 2hrs presser and then an event where press gets to demo games and get more info, eat, drink, etc...for another 3hrs. There's absolutely not enough content to fit into 5hrs on stage.
This, and even if they did have enough, why would they want to do 5 hour presser? No matter what they show, people will have lost interest by the end. Besides, they'd be better off spreading that content out rather then announcing it all at once.
ffs, I'll be in bed the WHOLE time. ._.
It's a 2 hour conference. The event is taking place in a football stadium, it's probably a concert just like activation had last year. These companies just like to one up each other. Good thing i got my invite!
SHUT UP! GOT MY POPCORN AND RAISINETS AND I DONT EVEN LIKE RAISINETS, SHUT UP!
Anyone know who will be streaming this live on a website. Cos for that long. Ill need bucket popcorn some drink in.
Official E3 site, IGN, Gamespot. Those are the main ones.
I downloaded it from PSN last year.
I know i watched it on ign last year , but i didnt know theres a official E3 website . Cool chaps thx .
I cant wait to watch E3
Sony has alot to show M$ show will be 30mins lol
Sony are going to go crazy at e3.. I reckon they'll start or atleast cover PSN maybe "it was a hue disapoint as to what happend but it's back now, it's secure and here's a bunch of awesome new features" then even more exclusives.. so games still to be released NGP, psp hd remakes, smart AR, the playstation suite app.. tonnes of stuff :D 5hours is awesome! i wish i could go :(
They have to talk about their lineup of multiplatform and 1st party games, ps move, ngp, psp remastered games, and the psn situation, so 5 hours shouldn't be surprising. What should surprise everyone is if Sony can do all of this in under 1 to 2 hours lol
HOLY BLUEBERRY **** NUTS ! Just hope 3 hours isn't spent apologizing about the PSN outage.
i hope atleast two hours is spent torturing the hackers that did the PSN outage
I agree, but the crackers (not hackers) cracked Sony's servers. Sony "did" the outage - rightfully so, but they did it. I want to see the same thing happen to the criminals, but let's call it like it is. Those guys don't deserve the "hacker" moniker.
holy shit are u kidding me? 5 hours omg excitement through the ruff i cant wait to see wat they have if this is true theres a very good chance that agent will be shown yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sony wins E3 weeks before it starts? Damn.
yea but nintendo has a new console so that always is a huge thing so alot of coverage will go there rightfully so. But in terms of software and already announced hardware sony has it locked.
I hope they have a 20 minute intermission to let people go to the bathroom!
This is Sony we're talking about. I am expecting toilets built into the seats complete with anus rinse mechanism.
skip to 1:00 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I hope not. The press don't deserve anything. I'd turn up the heating, forbid people to stand up, and make the seating as hard as possible. XD
I stream E3 from my desk at work every year. Please Sony at least break for lunch!
... holy F*^k you have a lot of bubbles. And I think I understand why. haha
He is a mod and they can "cheat" the bubble-count :D All those bubbles look sexy :)
